Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this chapter, we draw upon our experiences of conducting focus groups to examine: (i) how we negotiated access to our sample of clubs and players; (ii) how we elicited data from focus group participants, with a particular emphasis on encouraging them to share and compare experience as part of our concern with studying the co-construction of meaning; (iii) the implications of focus groups for players; and (iii) some of the disciplinary advantages conferred by focus groups held with players in the workplace.
